Dear members, partners and friends,
The interest of the municipality for the activities was genuine and made a successful meeting, What interested them most was the promotion of youth initiatives as circular start-ups and multinational youth exchanges, the development of short food circuits, the promotion of the green sites of the commune as touristic attraction and the tackling of the problem of infiltrating passing-by traffic of the municipalities’ narrow lanes.
It has been agreed that the municipality will respond to the invitation to become a member of our academy.
We thank Ms. Daniela Livia Biciu, President of the Association of Romanian Women in Belgium for facilitating this meeting. This Association aims to support the Romanian community in this country, and also, to promote the relations and exchanges both at the national and European level.
